Description - Frogeye Sprite by John Baggott

Frogeye Sprite - The Complete Story is the only book to have been written exclusively about the iconic Mark 1 Austin Healey Sprite. The headlights in the bonnet and unusual radiator grill shape gave the car a cheeky grin, so it soon gained the name 'Frogeye'. The book covers the full story of the design, development and manufacture of the Mark 1 Austin Healey Sprite, including the considerable success of the car in racing and rallying.

More recently, he subjected it to a detailed nine-year restoration that was completed in June 2005, and now enjoys driving it as a classic. He has a vast knowledge of the Austin Healy Sprite and its sister car, the MG Midget, having built, maintained, tuned, sprinted, raced and rallied various examples. Since he forged a new career as an author in 1991, John has written numerous magazine articles about Spridgets. Frogeye Sprite is his fifth book for crowood.
